RESEARCH PROJECT


Carbon (C) based materials are widely employed in different technological fields. Graphene (G) is the most fundamental archetype of C nanostructures and it has gained a clear prominence among materials thanks to its exceptional properties (superb carrier mobility, good transparency, excellent thermal conductivity etc.).
Nowadays, the forefront of research has moved from the study of the basic properties of pure G, to the investigation of chemically modified systems, i.e. doped-G or GO, and of their interaction with other nano-objects, such as nanoparticles (NPs) or complex molecules, to form G nano-composites with a significant reactivity, in contrast to the chemical inertness of G.  Read More...
